      "Jungle of Weeds" to War: Fort Monmouth and World War I

      The United States had a very short time to prepare itself for World War I, and one symbol of that rapid preparation was Fort Monmouth which went from a "jungle of weeds" to war readiness in a matter of months.

      Melissa Ziobro, Professor of Public History at Monmouth University and the last Command Historian at Fort Monmouth before its closure, will explain the role Fort Monmouth played in advancing U.S. communications and technology during World War I. She will also touch upon some of the other military bases in New Jersey that were in service during the war.

      Join us on the Smith-Cadbury patio for iced tea, lemonade, and other summer treats. Then, deepen your understanding of New Jersey’s role in World War 1 with an outdoor twilight talk from one of our area’s experts.

      Admission is $5 and tickets must be purchased in advance. Seating is limited, so purchase your tickets today! To RSVP, please email Mickey DiCamillo at To purchase tickets, go to the Events page at
